In accordance with the General Property Tax Laws of the State of Michigan, the Bloomfield Township Assessor's Office estimates the true cash value, assessed value and taxable value of every parcel of real and personal property within Bloomfield Township. The Assessor's Office is responsible for the valuation of all real and personal property in Bloomfield Township that is not specifically exempted by law. It prepares assessment rolls and evaluates all new construction and improvements to real property.
The taxable status of property is determined as of December 31 of each year for the next tax year.
The Michigan State Tax Commission requires periodic inspection of all real property parcels. Inspections are necessary to maintain complete and accurate assessment records and the assessor may survey, examine or review properties at any time during the year. With over 18,000 real property parcels, Bloomfield Township must inspect thousands of parcels each year.
The Assessor’s Office reviews the assessment records of both new construction and existing property throughout the year. Schedules vary significantly from one project to another; therefore, the Office may make a number of inspections of a property throughout the year.
Financial Assistance Program
As of June 2020 Bloomfield Township has streamlined the process and application form for those residents seeking hardship exemption for property taxes, waiver of solid waste, and Minor Home Repair Community Block Grants. Residents facing financial hardship can now use one form to apply for any or all of the above. The Assessor's Office will administer this program.
